Frank Sinatra sings “Night and Day” (music and lyric by Cole Porter, 1932) from a series of Italian commercials for Perugina chocolate candy—created and shown in Italy just before his 1962 world tour began there. This archival film comes from the collection of J. Fred MacDonald.

“Night and Day” was written for the 1932 musical Gay Divorce, and was introduced by Fred Astaire, who reprised it in the 1934 film version retitled The Gay Divorcee.
